Can you believe that it’s nearly fall? High school football has begun, and in a few short weeks we will be enjoying games while bundled up against the chill, cocoa in one hand and our cell phones in the other. The season of harvest festivals, apple picking, and yes, pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING is soon upon us. As I look out the windows here at work and see the shades of browns and greens beginning to change, I’m excited for cooler temperatures that open up the days to so many more possibilities.
As leaves change colors and scatter to the ground, we’re given the chance to begin anew new. We don’t have to wait for the start of a new year to tackle that one adjustment we keep talking about. We can just simply take the first step and make it happen, from new jobs to new relationships and everything in between.
We can even take this new season to help us out of a personal rut, whether it be taking the same road every day to work or wearing dark, boring clothing every day. I admit that I have fallen into the trap of wearing dark colors because it is “slimming.” However, I’ve been making an effort to actually include color in my wardrobe. Thankfully there are some amazing pieces in this year’s fall collections!
One of my favorite trends this fall is a nod to the pumpkin-flavored-everything trend: gorgeous shades of oranges, warm browns reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg, and cool creams, all reminding us of the bounty of fall. Earthy tones, like this wonderful top by Vince Camuto, gently brings us down from the bright and poppy colors of summer.
For those of us not quite ready to give in to the season of change, softer, muted tones of summer is reflected in these pieces by Rachel Pally and Steve Madden. Add in great accessories by Kendra Scott, unstructured bags of soft, supple leathers, and polished booties to add strut to your stride, and you’re ready for a fabulous fall.
